george bush or president obama-- is what is the fbi doing to prevent the next terrorist attack? >> reporter: mueller was forced to transform the fbi from a criminal investigative agency into a counter-terrorism force. while there have been no major follow-up strikes, there have been domestic attacks-- fort hood in 2009 and the boston marathon bombings in april. despite criticism that the fbi missed some warning signs, mueller said neither incident was preventable. the 2007 russian warning about tamerlan tsarnaev turned up no connections. >> the agent who had that lead did a thorough job in tracking down any information. he went to the college campus, did records checks, and interviewed the parents, and ultimately interviewed the individual. >> reporter: but you're satisfied that the fbi in the boston case before the event did a thorough job? >> yes. >> reporter: mueller also promised that people will be brought to justice for those attacks in benghazi, which killed u.s. ambassador chris stevens and three others, and mueller expressed personal satisfaction, bob, with the convict

world today than when george bush left office. >> chuck, to hear some of those answers and there's more about the united states national interests both in terms of making sure that weapons of mass destruction are not proliferating and protecting our alleys and bases in the region, he was a little bit all over the place when it came to answering these questions on syria. >> he seemed to be sort of gathering up a huge grab bag of reasons why we want do it. international law made a brief appearance although i would argue that bashar al assad has violated international law in the course of this. he just doesn't want to do anything. that's been evident for months now. he's even willing to take the hit that comes from drawing a redline and then allowing assad to cross it and have no consequences. i think, you know, when a politician says as he said we got to take a look at that, that's a sure sign what he really means is i have no intention of doing anything. >> how does that translate, do you think, charles, in the middle east? >> it tells people that you do what you need to do. what am

failed policies from george w. bush, you don't need to boo, you just need your you just need to vote. after 21 months of a campaign that has taken us from the rocky coasts of maine, to the sunshine of california, we are one day away from changing america. one day. >> the next day barack obama went on to win florida. he when on to win virginia. he went on to win north carolina. a democrat won in north carolina. bill clinton did not win north carolina either time. but barack obama did. he did. just barely. he won by a little more than 14,000 votes. that was the first time a democrat had carried north carolina in a presidential election since jimmy carter. the obama campaign thought the state of north carolina was within reach. they pumped $15 million into the state to try to win it and they won it. they won on the strength of some key voting groups in the state. for example, voters 29 and younger voted for barack obama 74% to 26%. look at the african-american vote in north carolina. black voters in the state went for barack obama 95%-5%. turnout in the '08 presidential election was up

an answer that nicolle wallace, a lon actually worked for john mccain and george w. bush described as intellectual little dishonest. how would you describe his answer? >> it's absolutely factually dishonest. they require the house first and and then we've heard that the house has the votes but just to the go back to tom coburn for a minute because this is president really is a master of turning the other cheek in a way i can't speak for you or goldie but i don't think i'd be capable of because remember two years, exactly two years ago, tom coburn also spoke up to defend his friend, barack obama, and he said that the president didn't want to destroy america. he just wanted to encourage dependency because that worked so well for him as an african-american male. this man who was president the harvard law review. so again and again, tom coburn pulls out this friend card. and then uses it to completely undermine the president. and he knows better. also in that -- i listened to that hour long tape. he calls for a second constitutional convention. he says no, don't shut down the governmen

call from george h.w. bush. and here's part of the call from the influential southern baptist evangelist, billy graham: >> woodruff: that same night, president nixon spoke with defense secretary elliot richardson, whom he had just announced would become acting attorney general. in the speech, mr. nixon had said richardson would have full authority to name a special prosecutor to investigate the watergate affair, but on the phone, there was a different message. >> woodruff: a few weeks later, richardson appointed law professor archibald cox to be special prosecutor. here now to help us understand some of the historical context, we turn to veteran journalist and author marvin kalb who covered the watergate scandal. he is a senior adviser at the pulitzer center. and ken hughes. he studies recordings from the nixon presidency at the university of virginia's miller center. gentlemen, welcome to you both. marvin kalb, let me start with you. this is a tough day for president nixon. he had just asked his two top aides in the white house to leave-- h.r. halder man, and john ehrlichman.

appointed by george w. -- originally a george w. bush appointee, put on the courts by roberts, who's very friendly to this stuff. we have to take a big step back. you can still have the debate over whether you want really invasive surveillance of all of your electronic communications. what we learned this week, and what i think people have to get their arms around, is that we have the government lying to the very court that's supposed to oversee this, misleading that court over massive surveillance. so we haven't had the honest debate. we're finally getting little dribs and drabs it of it. you have everyone from mcconnell to president obama basically leaving us with an impression for years this was all overseen by the court, overseen as if it was okay. in fact, the court was waving a flag saying, this is wrong, this is unconstitutional, and don't lie to us. >> regarding that, you know, oversight by the court, to me that is the most troubling part. not only are there concerns over the points you raised, but the fact of the matter the court has said they basically have to rely upon the

george w. bush and now with obama. you're going to have partisans who call for impeachment. i think that's just where we are now as a country. >> and, you know, you'll remember during the height of the frenzy about the whole birther movement, donald trump said he had sent investigators to hawaii. he says you'll never believe what they're finding. they're finding this incredible stuff, without giving any actual information. so in terms of what they could specifically be talking about when they're talking about impeachable offenses, something that would rise to the level of high crimes, what specific instances might they be referring to? >> yeah, i mean, president obama has not committed a clear impeachable offense. like i said, this is just what you're going to get every presidency now. you know, coburn, you mentioned, cited incompetence. incompetence is not cause for impeachment. most americans don't think that the obama administration is incompetent. so this is just something that there's not, you know, a clear bill of goods against obama. there's not specific things that he's done

former president george w. bush. good morning, gentlemen. we have had a number about cases recently which provoked so much discussion about race in this country and this milestone does beg that question, how are we doing on this front? juan, let me start with you. >> well, if you look at it as a matter of history, 50 years, there is no comparison between america of 1963 and america of 2013. martha, i think of it in very personal terms. i think my dad couldn't be working at a major network. i don't think it is possible that, to be publishing books and writing columns in america the way that i am. i think he would be living in segregated neighborhood. i know he was. that's where i grew up. in terms of educational opportunities it would have been far less but i think what you see in the poll i think it is very interesting, 44% of whites said we are not equal, have so much more to go is i think overwhelmingly what you see from the poll people say we still have struggles because of differences in terms of educational opportunities and specific what i would point to although that is not i

cooper burgh and i'm from seattle, washington. you were appointed in 2004 by president george w. bush and he spoke about how the u.s. inspired socialism. i was wondering if you could take a second to talk about the ethical implications of universal health care and what your opinions are on that. >> okay. well, there is no question that we need health care reform in this country. we spend twice as much per capita in this country and yet we have tremendous access problems and there is an enormous amount of waste and efficiency in our system. so that is not going to be corrected by throwing more money out there. it is going to be corrected by doing intelligent things. so for instance if you get an appendectomy in birmingham versus new york city versus detroit, different costs, different ways of collecting, all of which justify the mountains of paper involved in the armies of people that have to be paid out of the health care dollar. that is absolute craziness. when every diagnosis has something that is an icd-9 code. and we have computers as well. which means that it can all be done electron

allow you to waive the no child left behind act. that law was signed in by george w. bush. it is governed programs for disadvantaged students. essentially we hear from conservatives, tea party members in particular, that this is inappropriate. we also hear that there are progressives, people on the left-end of the spectrum -- there might be more standardized testing. you have people on the left and the right who have critiques of the standards. there are concerns about the content and the skepticism on fairly nuanced issues. there are literacy standards in which they expect students to work a lot with textbooks, including nonfiction and not just fiction. diaries. there are some traditional things. also, you might be expecting too much, but they have to grapple with text content. there are some struggling readers. >> we will open up the phone lines in a minute. we will ask our viewers about the government's role in k-12 education. states get a warning about the no child left behind. they said the education department last thursday said that three of the 40 states granted waivers f
